You have to compile your GWT application and host in a webserver. Then navigate to this webserver with your browser. And finally press the DevModeOn bookmarklet to switch to superdevmode.

  1. Drag the bookmarklets (Dev mode on/off) to your bookmarks bar
  2. Compile your gwtsample project into a war
  3. Deploy the war into a webserver like tomcat or jetty
  4. Take your browser (Chrome highly recommended for GWT debugging) and navigate to your installation : for example http://localhost:8080/gwtsample
  5. Now you are just seeing your compiled version in the browser
  6. Next hit the "Dev mode on" bookmarklet.
  7. You will see a message in the browser that compilation is taking place
  8. Now you are in SuperDevMode
  9. Change something in your code
  10. Hit F5 in the browser. Now a recompile will happen and you will see your changes

You can always hit "Dev mode off" to switch off superdevmode. Now you will just see your original compiled application.

Extra : if you are using Eclipse I highly recommend using the branflake plugin :

He has some great videos of how to use it :

This way you don't even need to compile and host in some webserver as you can run with an embedded Jetty webserver.
